This weekend why don't you :: lace it up!
Thinking about finally jumping on the laced up flats trend & dying over this pair (in nude) from Steve Madden!

{what you might have missed on Here&Now}

{1.} This week I joined forces with Fab.com to make-over my home office & upgrade my everyday style (this post also has a hilarious insight into life with pugs). Don't forget to enter the $1,000 Fab shopping spree giveaway

{2.} I've been trying to break out of my work wear rut lately! This outfit highlighted my usual teacher outfit of cardigan + skirt (both pieces on sale now!) + I finally allowed my self to bust out some of the Spring pieces in my wardrobe to update the Fall/Winter items that I am sick of seeing already - resulting in this outfit!

{3.} One of the popular styles for Spring that you can totally wear now is the loose peplum trend popping up everywhere! I love how the striped peplum tee in this outfit totally elevates pieces that I have had in my closet for years. 

{4.} This month the Bloggers Who Budget highlighted how to wear neutrals for less - I rocked a long camel colored cardigan that is so dreamy, perfect for this transitional weather! 

{5.} Finally starting to put a regular work out routine in place - of course new (CUTE!) work out wear was required! 




{posts I'm loving around the internets}

{1.}  How to price yourself as a blogger. This is something that can be so nebulous & I'm thankful that more bloggers are being transparent about their pricing - definitely helps with my own brand negotiations. 

{2.} 8 wardrobe staples that are perfect for this transitional weather.


{3.} My motto for Spring: Be Steady.


{4.} Outfit crush: dressing up a sweatshirt. I recently got my own statement sweatshirt (outfit here) & I love the idea of jazzing it up with a blazer and fancy pants!


{5.} Should you build a capsule wardrobe? I love the idea of living with less - including less clothes in my closet - but this idea actually isn't for everyone.


{6.} How to wear white jeans for winter. I too am a proponent of this style - the perfect way to brighten up a dreary Winter outfit. My favorite white denim for Winter outfit that I've personally styled is here.



{what I'm shopping now}

{1.} Blue gingham dress - I think this is so cute! I love waist defining fit & flare frocks & this pattern + flattering cut make this a no brainer closet addition!

{2.} Asymmetrical striped skirt - I just cannot get this little number out of my head! I love that it also comes with a matching striped crop top & I'm busy pretending I have a million places to wear this get up!

{3.} Floral maxi dress - This style is slated to be hot for Spring, but I think with a floppy felt hat + brown booties this would be a great weekend look for right now!

{4.} Kortni Jeane swimwear - I love my suit from this adorable company (coming to the blog soon!) but they just released their new spring styles & prints including this top that I am dying over in the green cactus motif!
